1. The graph of f (x)=cos(x) is transformed to a new function, g(x), by stretching it horizontally by a factor of 4 and shifting it 1 unit up.

What is the equation of the new function g (x)?

g(x)=

2.

What is the amplitude of the function f(x)?

f(x)=3/4cos(3x)+4

3.

What is the equation of the midline for the function f(x)?

f(x)=1/2cos(x)+5

I really appreciate your help. Thanks so much.

1. cos(x) now stretch it horizontally by 4

cos (x/4) Now shift it UP by '1'

cos(x/4) +1

2. amplitude = 3/4

3. A cos (x ) wave with amplitude 1/2 has midline at 0 Now shift it UP by 5....the midline now shifts up by 5

midline is at 5 SO: y=5
